#5 – Be Careful About Interpreting and Assuming God’s Meaning

Have you ever had someone come up to you and tell you about some bizarre dream they had and then proceed to give you an even more bizarre interpretation of the dream?

Daniel, who himself interpreted some pretty heavy-duty dreams, said that only God can give the interpretation of dreams.

We must be very careful to not put “words in God’s mouth” concerning His will for our lives, or else we can create a hot mess!!!

Don’t try to make the Word of God say something that’s not there. 2 Timothy 2:15 says, “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

If you think you know the will of God for your situation, it must always conform to the written Word of God. Why? Because the Word and Spirit always agree.

Wait for God’s guidance. If it’s not clear, slow down. Let God speak clearly over time or through circumstances.
